So beautiful & so simple. I really need to start designing again. BUT WHAT?!?!

Word as Image by Ji Lee

Says Lee about this project he started 20 years ago in a design class: “When we were children, letters were like fun toys. We played with them through our building blocks. We colored them in books. We danced and sang along with TV puppets while learning C was for ‘cookie.’ Soon, letters turned into words. Words turned into sentences. Sentences turned into thoughts. And along the way, we stopped playing with them and stopped marveling at A through Z. Anyone can create a word as image. It doesn’t require any design or drawing skills. All you need is a little creative thinking and to see words and letters in a different way. The dictionary is filled with thousands of fun visual puzzles just waiting to be solved”.

I just finished House of Leaves and found it both experiential & entertaining – an education on the fine line be[confusion & clarity]tween.

As someone whose career is built UPon the written word it was quite inspirational.

Challenging.

Preparing to put the book away I find my spatial awareness keener, & appear to be giving ordinary closets a      w  i  d  e      berth.

I expect these symptoms won’t last ____long____, as revisiting Danielewski’s disclaimer* provides me with the necessary reassurance.

Tomb Raider AND Typography?! Two of my favorite things!!

My first Typeography

Typography is performed by typesetters, compositors, typographers, graphic designersart directors, comic book artists, graffiti artists, clerical workers, and anyone else who arranges type for a product. Until the Digital Age, typography was a specialized occupation. Digitization opened up typography to new generations of visual designers and lay users, and it has been said that “typography is now something everybody does.”
